Google‘s CEO has hinted at possible job cuts as he said he wanted the company to become ’20 percent more efficient’ after years of rapid hiring. 

Sundar Pichai, 50, said at Code Conference that he plans on making the mega-company more efficient by limiting the number of people having to make decisions ahead of a slowdown in ad revenue. 

‘The more we try to understand the macroeconomic, we feel very uncertain about it,’ he said at Code Conference on Tuesday, according to CNBC. ‘The macroeconomic performance is correlated to ad spend, consumer spend and so on.’

Although he reportedly admitted that macroeconomic factors are outside of his control, he did reveal the company has slowed down as the number of employees sped up. 

In the last five years, Google has jumped from just under 100,000 full-time employees to over 150,000. 

In 2017, there were 80,110 full-time employees, 98,771 in 2018, 118,899 in 2019, 135,301 in 2020 and 156,500 in 2021, according to Macro Trends.

In total, Google added 76,390 jobs over five years, but Pichai is now saying the overgrowth in jobs has led to less efficiency. 

‘Across everything we do, we can be slower to make decisions,’ he said on Tuesday. ‘Sometimes there are areas to make progress [where] you have three people making decisions, understanding that and bringing it down to two or one improves efficiency by 20 percent.’
